If you've spent any time on social media between Sunday and now, your feed has likely been flooded with scenes from FOX Network's The Simpson's episode "The Road to Cincinnati."

The show (season 32, episode 8) debuted on Sunday, Nov. 29, and follows unlikely duo Principal Skinner and Superintendent Chalmers on their "800-mile" voyage to the Queen City for an administrator's convention where Chalmers plans to deliver a keynote. 

The episode features some iconic Queen City spots including the Roebling Bridge, Duke Energy Convention Center and, of course, the Clifton Skyline

There was even a flying pig wearing a Reds uniform — holding a sign which read, "Welcome to Cincinnati: Birthplace of Pete Rose's Gambling Problem."

Apparently, while doing research for the episode, The Simpson's crew scored some "sweet mail-order Skyline Chili," and when the pandemic hit, Executive Producer Matt Selman happily took it home to ride out "the end of times."
